“PLAY” is a two part mini-documentary, directed by Dave Grohl, celebrating the rewards and challenges of dedicating one’s life to playing music. Part one opens with narrated behind the scenes discussion of the love of playing music and the lifelong relationship with an instrument—as well as the process and challenges of recording and filming this unique performance: The “PLAY” film then segues to the titular 23-minute, one-man-band instrumental recording on which Grohl plays all seven instruments on the track, all live. The entire song was played by Grohl, each time on a different instrument, live all the way through for 23 minutes.
“To any musician, young or old, a beautiful studio full of instruments is like a playground.”
Dave Grohl – PLAY.

The immersive audio/video experience is live at play.roswellfilms.com, and is rather innovative. Users can select to view the performance on just one instrument, if they choose, select an isolated audio track of that one instrument and/or blend it in with everything else for a customized individual experience.
It’s also up for purchase on the Foo Fighters’ official site in a variety of formats, as well.
